We’re wrapping up this month’s project for November where we tried some of the recipes featured in the Taste of the Sisterhood and I got a chance to make a bunch of YOUR recipes too!
It was AWESOME!
And by the way, I went in for a second round of the crock pot oatmeal I featured last week from Mary and this time I added cinnamon, brown sugar and diced apples and it was EVEN BETTER than the first time I made it! A must-have for the cold season!
The last recipe I am featuring this week is one from Beki at Wild Child Gone Good. And Beki, I hope you don’t mind but it’s been a busy busy week here so I took a few liberties with the recipe. I am pretty sure it was still ABSOLUTELY delicious because a certain 4 year old someone loved it so much he insisted I take a picture of him eating the last little bit:
The recipe was for Twice Baked Potatoes from Weight Watchers and it was fabulous.
4 large baking potatoes, scrubbed 1 garlic bulb 1/2 C low-sodium chicken broth 1/2 tsp ground black pepper 1/4 C grated parmesan cheese
1/2 C low-fat or fat free sour cream
Paprika, to garnish
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Pierce potatoes w/ fork; place on oven rack. Wrap garlic bulb in foil & place next to potatoes. Bake for 60 minutes.
Take potatoes & garlic out and let them cool for about 15-30 minutes, or until comfortable to handle.
Cut potatoes in half length wise. I use a serrated knife so that I don’t damage the skins. Scoop the insides into a large bowl. Leave skins intact. Cut garlic bulb in half; squeeze out pulp into the bowl with the potato insides.
Add broth, pepper, Parmesan cheese and sour cream. Stir and mash with a fork to the desired texture. Spoon the mixture back into potato skins. Sprinkle w/ some more Parmesan cheese and paprika.
Return potatoes to oven on a cookie sheet and bake until thoroughly heated and lightly browned. About 15 minutes.
That was Beki’s recipe and I, um, created a couple of little tiny time-crunch shortcuts: Yes, I admit it. I nuked the potatoes. I wanted to do it the oven way, but my family was coming over and I had to hurry it up! So I nuked em. Don’t hate me. Then I scooped em out, put the shells in the oven to get the outsides crispy while I made the insides, and instead of baking the bulb of garlic, I sauteed minced garlic on the stove, put it in the blender with a little broth and blended it all up and added it into the potato mixture.
It was delicious! Everyone raved about them and I will totally make these again! Do try it!
